Playing as Bandana Dee, the player must defeat a team consisting of Meta Knight and Black Mage while teamed up with Kirby on Dream Land. If Kirby is defeated, the player will fail the event, so they also must ensure that he does not get KO'd during the event. The player, their ally, and their opponents each have 1 stock, and the launch rate for both opponents is set to 1.2 so they take more knockback from attacks.
The ranking the player receives is based on how much time the event takes to be completed. The specific conditions for this are listed below.
When first incorporated into the game, this event was listed as #8, incorrectly named Nightmare in Dreamland, and it allowed the player to choose their character, as opposed to strictly using Bandana Dee.
The preview image of this event was changed in Beta 1.2 due to Kirby receiving new sprites and costumes.
